First of all, I'm sorry if this forum isn't meant for hardware discussion, but I still very badly want to share something I found.. And there are other HW topics out there, am I right?

Anyways, check this out: http://vimeo.com/m/85450949

It must be a concept (at least looks like one) but it's a very cool one and it's making me think a product like this is possible and might even be in the market one day.

Anyway happy sailing everyone! Hope I didn't break any etiquette (or rules, which I did read before though). I'll keep you updated as soon as I hear anything! (And in case you find something, don't hesitate to share!)

I think this is the correct place to post it, you may rest assured. Also this is good news, I always did love a physical keyboard. Though I haven't got a Jolla phone; my old contract ran out too early so I got a nexus 4 instead and am avidly waiting for the port we saw to be finished.

I've seen a qwerty other half on some blog and it was made, but it cost 100 and was hand-built. The guy had 30 to make and promised to do more if people were willing to pay. The cost (at least for me) was much too high to even think twice. Not that I can afford the Jolla itself at the moment :P

Yeah, but for a DIY project - nice to see it happening
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=91535 - it's not the blog post, but a forum thread about which that post was, so same thing.

Oh, and I now see it's the same thing, thought it wasn't. Nevertheless - more info in the link
